After taking a a little break between Stitch Fix boxes #5 and 6 during Lent I'm back to show you what came in my most recent box!The box arrived on our doorstep on Good Friday, but I held out until Tuesday to try it all on and make some declensions.
If you're wondering what Stitch Fix is, or how it works... It's a personal shopping service, and all you have to do to get started is fill out the Stitch Fix Style Profile and our personal stylists will handpick a selection of five clothing items and accessories unique to your taste, budget and lifestyle. You can buy what you like and return the rest! The styling fee is $20, and if you pick something from your fix that fee is applied to whatever you decided to buy!
If you've never tried Stitch Fix before I highly recommend giving it at least one try. It is so much fun! And if you do decide to sign up please use my referral link --- thank you thank you!
When I opened the box and saw the pieces chosen for me I wasn't thrilled, at first. There were a pair of shorts, something I rarely wear and a a handful of other items that didn't appeal to me right off the bat. After checking out the outfit suggestions made by my stylist, I decided that for this fix I would try and re-create the outfit suggestions on the cards to see if I could actually picture myself wearing the pieces with what I already have.
Item #1: Finnegan Roll Cuff Chino Short by Dear John ($48) - I'm not a fan of shorts. They're super cute on most people -- I just do not like them on myself. I wear them every once in a while, but they have to be the right length. these were way shorter than I'm comfortable with. Verdict: Returned
Item #2: Becky Cutout Detail Top by Skies are Blue ($44) - This top fit fine, and I didn't dislike the color, material or print, but I just wasn't excited about it either. It felt very similar to tops I've owned before, so I decided against it.
I tried it on with the Pomelo Analisse Anorak Jacket I bought from a past Stitch Fix box, my Baxley Zipper Detail Skinny Jeans from my last box, and a pair of taupe booties like the ones shown on the card. Turned out to be a pretty cute, casual outfit. I'll have to remember the combination the next time I get dressed in real clothes! Verdict: Returned
Item #3: Bowie Solid Dolman Sleeve Top by Laila Jayde ($58) - I really did not think I'd like this sweater. Because? 1. it's a sweater and we're on the verge of Spring 2. the color is more Fall to me and 3. the dolman style has never appealed to me. But then I tried it on and fell in love. I knew I was keeping this one for sure.
I tried it on with some similar pieces I already own, and even though the outfit is very "fall" I was convinced I had to keep the top. I've worn it twice already this week! Verdict: Kept!
Item #4: Kathy Striped Fit & Flare Dress by Pixley ($68) - I requested a dress I could wear to the park with Owen and then transition to a date night, so I assume this is what they thought would work. I liked the dress (cut/style/color), but the material is just too stiff to wear around with a 3 year-old.
I paired the dress with gold sandals like the ones pictures, but didn't have a gold bag, so I just added the gold tone necklace I received at the Stitch Fix event I went to last month. Looking back at the pictures the dress is pretty cute. Maybe I should have kept it? Verdict: Returned
SO, what would you have kept? I usually only let myself keep one thing from each box, but sometimes it's hard to keep to that limit. It is so much fun seeing what they send each month. The pieces I've picked from my fixes over the last year have become some of my favorite staples! So, if you decide to sign up please use my referral link!
